Re: 2014 Summit 1269 miles dead battery

your dash and console lights shouldn't be on. Are they on for an extended period of time?

They come on and then switch off but I didnt think they were supposed to be on at all when the fob wasnt near it

Ever wash your jeep with your keys in your pocket it's crazy how often you see the lights go on and off and doors lock /unlock when you walk around it.
Wait you didn't even have the keys near it?

Maybe your Jeep has a thing for your Caddy, and it just lights up its lights.

Seriously, could some kind of electronics in the Caddy be triggering something in the Jeep?

I think so... but why the hell would that be happening? I thought when the jeep was off and the fob was away the f'ing thing would go to sleep. However this has happened one time in a garage by itself so something is fricked up
